We were there a few months ago and the dirt road was moderately corrugated. There were no clearance issues and, if you took it carefully, you could get into the Bluff in a Morris Minor. It is well worth seeing and is quite an amazing place.

I used to live in the area about 8 years ago; I got my Toyota Corolla in with no dramas.


Looking for adventure.

We were there a couple of years back and the while the road inside was very smooth, the access road had washouts from a rain event - clearance may have been an issue for some conventional vehicles, then - but if it was me, I'd drive in and have a look - the grader could have been there recently.

Steve,

usually OK but can be a bit rough after meteor impacts

Hi

~30km one way. How much time should you allow ? - your call.

Also as a back up suggest you buy a map of the area in case there is no internet and you can't ask for directions :)

Cheers
Greg

Assuming that you are coming from Alice, Hermannsburg to the turnoff can be quite rough and corrugated so better to go via Namatjira drive out past Glen Helen and around via Tylers Pass (good lookout to the Bluff) and bitumen (still some roadworks but good dirt last August) right down to the turnoff in to the Bluff. That way it's only the last few K's on dirt and a lot easier on a 2WD. We were in a 4WD and wished we had returned the way we came.
